Still Alive

February 10, 2020—

When we do not contemplate the literal truth of the Gospel, we begin to lose touch with our deep spiritual roots. Today’s song by Jeremy Camp expresses the undeniable foundation of our faith and the source of our hope and strength—Jesus is “Still Alive.”

In me in the beat of my heart

In the light in all of the dark

All my hope will never die

‘Cause you’re still alive

Today, let us pray for the strength to persevere in all things—with Jesus’s death and resurrection, we have absolutely nothing to fear.

Thanks for listening today.


Here are the lyrics in full:

I don't wanna waste just another day
Tell me where I should go and there I will go
I don't wanna miss 'cause I'm too afraid
Of what I don't know, oh I don't
Even in the desert
I'm scared and I'm tired and I'm feeling alone
'Cause I don't wanna wait just another day
Tell me where I should go and there I will

I'm wide awake
I hear You calling my name
After all the things I've been through
Every scar and every bruise
You remind me every time
You're still alive
You're still alive
In me in the beat of my heart
In the light in all of the dark
All my hope will never die
'Cause you're still alive
You're still alive
You're still alive
You're still alive
You're still alive
You're still alive
In me

I just want to face what I tend to fear
What I can't control, I give You control
I don't really know what You're doing here
But I give You control
I give You control

I'm wide awake
'Cause I hear You calling my name
After all the things I've been through
Every scar and every bruise
You remind me every time
You're still alive
You're still alive
In me in the beat of my heart
In the light in all of the dark
All my hope will never die
'Cause you're still alive
You're still alive
You're still alive
You're still alive
You're still alive
You're still alive
In me

I stand here in Your presence
I'm safe and secure and I'm never alone

You're still alive
You're still alive
After all the things I've been through
(You keep the fire burning in my heart)
Every scar and every bruise
You remind me every time
You're still alive
You're still alive
In me in the beat of my heart
In the light in all of the dark
All my hope will never die
'Cause you're still alive
You're still alive
You're still alive
You're still alive
You're still alive
You're still alive
In me

Only You Can

January 30, 2020—

Today’s song by Jeremy Camp, “Only You Can,” reminds us that everything we do, we do with God’s help—and we cannot live without Him.

I live my hands up to the only unstoppable King

The one who can see far beyond the things that I see

And in the moments when I’ve lost the strength to believe

I won’t give up on the only one who won’t give up on me

Today, let us give thanks to our all-powerful God, who wants nothing more than to draw us closer to Him—and let us wonder at this amazing mystery.

Thanks for listening today.


Here are the lyrics in full:

When I've met my match
And there's nowhere to go
Heart under attack
No hope on my own
I break and I tear
Spin out of control
The burdens I wear
Like weights on my shoulders
So find me here as I surrender

I need You to do
What only You can
Only You can
Fight for my life when fear's got me surrounded
Only You can
Only You can
Keep me believing when doubt's got me drowning
'Cause there's no one else who can calm this storm
And there's no one else who can save my soul
Only You can
Only You can, God
Only You can

When all that I face
Is face to face with Your power
The enemy silenced
As my praises get louder
The battle's been won
The darkness will hide
The dead things in me
Are starting to rise
So find me here as I surrender

I need You to do
What only You can
Only You can
Fight for my life when fear's got me surrounded
Only You can
Only You can
Keep me believing when doubt's got me drowning
'Cause there's no one else who can calm this storm
And there's no one else who can save my soul
Only You can
Only You can, God
Only You can

I live my hands up to the only unstoppable King
The one who can see far beyond the things that I see
And in the moments when I've lost the strength to believe
I won't give up on the only one who won't give up on me
I live my hands up to the only unstoppable King
The one who can see far beyond the things that I see
And in the moments when I've lost the strength to believe
I won't give up on the only one who won't give up on me
Lord find me here as I surrender

I need You to do
What only You can
Only You can
Fight for my life when fear's got me surrounded
Only You can
Only You can
Keep me believing when doubt's got me drowning
'Cause there's no one else who can calm this storm
And there's no one else who can save my soul
Only You can
Only You can, God
Only You can

He Knows

January 8, 2020—

Sometimes it seems that even though God sees and knows everything, we imagine Him as a dispassionate observer. As you listen to today’s song of the day, remember that God not only understands our suffering but weeps alongside and for us: “He Knows” by Jeremy Camp.

And every time that you feel forsaken

Every time that you feel alone

He is near to the broken hearted

Every tear, He knows

While we struggle and suffer in our own lives, let us strive to remember that God knows our pain and cries alongside us—and He is always present to comfort and guide us.

Thanks for listening today.


Here are the lyrics in full:

In all the bitter weary ways
The endless striving day by day
You barely have the strength to pray
In the valley low
And how hard your fight has been
How deep the pain within
Wounds that no one else has seen
Hurts too much to show
And all the doubt you're standing in between
And all the weight that brings you to your knees

He knows
He knows
Every hurt and every sting
He has walked the suffering
He knows
He knows
Let your burdens come undone
Lift your eyes up to the one who knows
He knows

We may faint and we may sink
Feel the pain and near the brink
But the dark begins to shrink
When you find the one who knows
The chains of doubt that held you in between
One by one are starting to break free

He knows
He knows
Every hurt and every sting
He has walked the suffering
He knows
He knows
Let your burdens come undone
Lift your eyes up to the one who knows
He knows

And every time that you feel forsaken
Every time that you feel alone
He is near to the brokenhearted
Every tear...

He knows
He knows
Every hurt and every sting
He has walked the suffering
He knows
He knows
Let your burdens come undone
Lift your eyes up to the one who knows
He knows
He knows
He knows
